Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Adam. I find the world both incredibly beautiful and
interesting but also frustrating. Particularly how everything in
the world is too small when your 6 ft 4" and built like a rugby
I'm not cool, bar a short period of time in 2004, I've never been
cool, that's fine I've never wanted to be cool.
I'm an odd mix of idealistic and cynical (I wholeheartedly believe
that if your not cynical your not paying close enough
I'm unapologetically political/atheist/feminist but I try not to be
dogmatic and i love a good debate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently in the process of changing career from the charity
sector to working in media production. After years of doing jobs
that had nothing to do with what I'd studied (film
studies/journalism and politics/philosophy, it's a long story) I
was time to stop waiting and start doing.
In the long term I'd like to be a writer (novels, tv, films,
graphic novels I'm not fussy as long as it's creative) but will
probably always have another job to pay the bills. I write reviews
for a horror website and a music site on the side at the moment.
Which is a fun sideline.
I also write music, sing and play guitar and have been in bands of
varying quality and style since my early teens. I still write
although I no longer have band.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, remembering things, hugs, what the french call "espirit
escalier" or the "spirit of the stairway" which means thinking of
the right thing to say five minutes too late, finding the least
appropriate joke to make in a given situation, sarcasm, suggesting
bands you've never heard of to listen to, books you've never heard
of to read and films you've never heard of to watch.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably how tall I am, then I would imagine it'd be my curly
Lately the Leonard from Big Bang Theory similarity gets mentioned
despite being much taller than him and having dressed the way I do
and loved the things I do for far longer than the show has been on

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A guitar, music, films, books, love and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, as I mentioned I studied philosophy so I'm pretty much always
thinking about something, mostly deep intellectual things but
sometimes it's just about ewoks ( I mean do they have ewok schools
and hospitals up in those trees?). I have a constant inner
monologue (it's a bit like an episode of Scrubs only less zany and
far more damaging to my self esteem)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends or at home playing music or writing or
